Trials discover that controversial sweetener aspartame is actually SAFE and doesn't cause headaches or nausea
[link to www.dailymail.co.uk]

The controversial sweetener aspartame has effectively been cleared as safe to eat by Government experts following human feeding trials.

Human guinea pigs were fed cereal snack bars, some of which contained the artificial sweetener, by a team of researchers at Hull York Medical School.

The study recruited 50 people who had reported reactions after consuming aspartame in the past, such as headaches and nausea.

There was also a control group of another 50 others who have eaten aspartame in food and fizzy drink over many years without any ill-effects.

However, the investigation found no evidence of harm in either those who reported past sensitivity to aspartame or the control group.

Significantly, this was a so-called double-blind trial where neither the trial participants or the researchers knew which of the bars was being eaten.

Yesterday, the Food Standards Agency announced that as a result of the British research, the Committee on Toxicity(CoT) had decided there is no need to ban or control the sale or consumption of the sweetener.

The FSA said: ‘The expert committee concluded that 'the results presented did not indicate any need for action to protect the health of the public'.’

The government watchdog has not released the full details of the research because they remain confidential until they have been published in a peer reviewed journal.

Aspartame is safe, but its metabolites are all powerful neurotoxins.
Thats why it causes autism.

I use it to kill fire ants in my yard. One packet on top of the nest and all of them dead.

Let us remember that the FDA denied aproval of aspartame for over 20 years. Only when the CEO of an aspartame producing company, Donald Rumsfeld, got into office did the poison get approved.

Aspartame is a by product of aluminum manufacturing.

There is nothing in that study that is capable of determining safety.

Symptoms and safety are two separate things.

Why the fuck is it so important to you that everybody consumes aspertame?

Are you trying to justify a case of Diet Coke a day habit to yourself?

Exactly this. A trial size of 50 is statistically insignificant. What are the effects after 1 year of daily consumption? Five years? Thirty? Just because you don't double over in anaphylactic shock immediately doesn't mean it is safe to eat.

Yep. Forgot.

Aspartame is geneticall engineered bacteria created by none other than Monsanto.

When digested it breaks up into two very toxic and carcinogenic poisons. One of them being Methanol.

Britain uses a different type of aspartame than the US. Ours is genetically engineered. Theirs is not.

Huge difference.

Written by a Jehovahs Witness who has never done a repeatable trial. Maybe you should learn about the natural process that happens when any food is eaten.

I can't even keep it down. 30 minutes at the most and it's coming back up. I am a Professional Aspartame identifier--if it's in the food/drink it's coming back up.

It's been proven to cause all sorts of more serious effects.

Definitely not worth it. Since when has the FDA had our true safety at hearts?
